About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath, Sleeps 6

You'll love relaxing at our charming yet spacious home after visiting area colleges, museums, historic sites, and all the other great things Boston has to offer. We're located steps from public transportation, and also an easy drive to the Back Bay, medical area, or downtown. Our quiet, tree-lined street is safe and within walking distance of several restaurants, stores and a playground.

The first floor has a well-equipped modern kitchen that opens onto a family room with large screen HD TV, a dining room with seating for six, and a large living room with fireplace. There's also a deck with grill and grassy area out back for the kids to play. A half-bath is also located on the first floor.

There are three large bedrooms on the second floor, two with queen beds, one with a full size bunk with a twin on top. There is a renovated, full bath with tub and shower on the second floor.

The house is located on the Brookline/ West Roxbury border with easy access to the Green and Orange MBTA lines. We're also within walking distance of the commuter rail, which gets you into BackBay or downtown within 30 minutes. We're a 10 minute drive from Boston College, 15 minutes from the Longwood medical area, and 30 minutes from Logan Airport. While convenient to Boston's historic, cultural and shopping sites, the house also is close to several beautiful parks where you can bike, walk or hike. These include the Arnold Arboretum, Larz Anderson, and the Blue Hills.

There's plenty of free on-street parking as well as a driveway providing access to an additional parking spot behind the house.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our guys trip to watch sports and see Boston. The house met all our needs, was clean and set up nicely in a beautiful area. Fenway Park and Downtown were a close Uber ride. Thanks for the accommodations and I would definitely stay there again if we choose that area for future trips.

Lovely cosy house in great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay in Boston, great location, easily accessible to the main road infrastructure and a 10 minute walk to the commuter train that took us into the city centre with ease. The House was charming, big rooms but with that cosy cottage feel. The 'sunroom' on the back with the big sofas was perfect for relaxing in the evening. Communication with Donna was perfect will definitely recommend to friends and stay again if in the area.

Excellent location, spacious house, great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with friends here, so in total were 4 adults and 2 small children. The house was spotless but cozy. It has everything you need to feel right at home. A nice play area for small kids in the basement, a lounge area for rainy day entertainment, a deck with a bbq... And very comfy beds! I would recommend this to anyone travelling and/or staying in Boston.

Car: recommended

The best of both worlds - close proximity to all Boston has to offer without the noise and parking hassles of downtown. We're located on a quiet, tree-lined street with plenty of free parking. BC, Fenway Park, Boston Children's Hospital and other hospitals in the Boston Medical Area are all within 5 miles of the house. Easy access to public transportation (both the subway and the commuter rail), Routes 9, 128 and the Mass Pike, enables you to easily explore all the great sights in the city as well as in the surrounding area.
